Newcastle United have been hit with yet another injury, with Nigerian striker Oba Martins likely to be out for up to six weeks, with a knee injury.
Oba Martins – out for 6 weeks with knee injury
Oba has joined fellow strikers Mark Viduka, Alan Smith and Andy Carroll on the long-term injury list, after injuring his knee in the game against Tottenham on Wednesday.
With so many injuries and with such a small squad, things are hardly good with the team, not to even mentioned the ownership situation and that Mike Ashley is trying to unload the club.
We will have to be very careful indeed, that the team doesn’t slump to the bottom of the league by Christmas, so we have no chance of avoiding relegation.
Things are that serious right now, essentially because of the inability of the club to in draft more players during the summer, and the sudden resignation of Kevin Keegan 3 weeks ago today.
The fact that we have no manager and the Newcastle Board refuse to come to the games doesn’t help much either of course.
